HC Deb 08 December 1932 vol 272 c1786
52. Mr. BATEY

asked the Minister of Transport if the suggested schemes for roads and bridges in Durham county by the Durham County Council has been considered by his Department; and, if so, can he state when it will be possible for work to be commenced, in view of the increase in unemployment in Durham?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

The schemes of the Durham County Council are being considered with those of other authorities, with due regard to their relative importance and urgency and to the financial position.


Are we likely to have an answer quickly on account of urgency, and the need for some work being found this winter?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

I am well aware, no one more so, of the urgency of the need in the county of Durham, and I can assure the hon. Member that we shall be as quick as we possibly can.
